  • Katherine Hahn is my personal favorite.

    This young lady can act! She demonstrates a level of sensitivity in her role on Crossing Jordan in a way that is sometimes shocking, sometimes vulnerable, sometimes tender, and mostly real. Coming across as a shy, covertly sensual, sensitive, and demure character, Katherine Hahn adds a flavor to the series that would not exist without her portrayal as Lily Lebowski. She offers a dimension that can only be described as an insecure, emotionally clumsy, grief-stricken grief counselor whose own experience taints her altruistic world view. Yet, at the same time she remaining highly effective. Personally, I think she one of the most the talented (and often overlooked) actress of Crossing Jordan.moreless
